need a hand for a couple of weeks in Leicester spraying monocouche , experience in monocouche not essential but a plasterer who can rule and bead and wants to learn about spraying mono and base coats would be ideal, further work as well ,
im a bit skeptical about microgoby , always preferred to do a scratch as simps says with highbond, i know people swear by it and ive seen some top jobs done using it, but i just believe some backgrounds need a scratchcoat!
he is right tho, have used gyprime on celcons and sprayed with cpi . it was not nice had a job to rule it ,it was sliding about and sagging ,didnt rub up till next day, and no suction when we skimmed it either!
if the exsisting render was uneven it should have been straightened first before fixing boards , you defo need fixings in k5 as any render manufacturer you speak to dont trust the tissue paper on them for just adhesive, parex also say to microgobetis before base coat to kill any suction as there...
steve your machine already has two filters another one isnt going to make a great deal of difference , if you put really fine mesh filter on as well the water pump is going to struggle to pull water through! the barrel and hose set up youve got is ideal for your machine just get used to cleaning...
you only need a small leak on your pressure flange where the r&s sits or on the bottom of the mixing zone where r&s sits and you wont get consistant readings , ive been doing pump tests on a 5m hose recently and finding it better!
not used anymore mate ,used to use one lime plastering ,use them the same as poly floats to flatten plaster ,finish is a "scrubbed " or "scoured" surface flat ready to take next coat , need to keep them wet so they dont dry out and crack!
